There's a support group for everything

I had a little too much fun with this one. 
I probably still have time for one more crowdsourced Christmas cartoon, if I get an idea compelling enough today. Hit me up here, on my tumblr, or on Twitter with your suggestions- (almost) nothing discounted out of hand!

We shop at the same store.

Revisiting my holiday tradition- crowdsourcing holiday-themed cartoons via mt Twitter feed. Still taking suggestions; the more strange or awkward the situation you can come up, the better! (Practically) nothing discounted out of hand.

"Retro" Chapter 3- Game Over (part 3)

It's finished! Chapter 3 turned out to be a whopping 22 panels long all said and done! When Retro is finished, it will be my longest cartoon to date by far (with my "Pigeons" saga a distant second place). I'll be getting started on Chapter 4 as soon as the holidays are over.

Speaking of, today is Thanksgiving. In the spirit of gorging yourself on things you don't need, make sure you binge on "Retro" chapter 1"Retro" chapter 2, and Chapter 3 part 1 and part 2 so you know what's going on. Enjoy!

"Retro" Chapter 3- Game Over (part 2)

After a long Saturday spent in front of Photoshop, Retro Chapter 3 part 2 is complete! Sometimes our actions have long-reaching effects of which we never see the end result, ripples in an endlessly large pond, and we can only guess the impact of our own lives on the larger portrait of history. 

And other times, our actions can retroactively wipe the entire video gaming industry out of existence. But y'know, it's usually that or the ripples thing. 

Missed the previous chapters? Catch Chapter 1 here, Chapter 2 here, and Chapter 3, part 1 here!

What is the full impact of our young heroes' foray into the past? With the incapacitation of the original Mario, have they ruined the future of gaming forever? And it is too late to change the course of history? Tune in next time in the exciting conclusion of "Retro", Chapter 3- Game Over!

A girl and her donut

Occasionally I enjoy drawing people's tweets. I find it entertaining. I hope you do too!

"Retro" Chapter 3- Game Over (part 1)

It's been a handful of weeks since I made an update to Retro. What can I say, adult duties abound. No worries- I colored and finished the first Chapter 3, part 1 yesterday! When we last left our young gamers, they'd found themselves hurled back in time by an eldritch stack of obsolete video game consoles. After a brief (and somewhat violent) trip to the past, have they now found their way back to their own time? What repercussions will their actions have on the present? Find out right now!

Missed the previous installments of Retro? Catch Chapter 1 here and Chapter 2 here!

What has become of Brad's video games? Will the world of home gaming ever be the same again? Stay tuned for "Retro", Chapter 3, part 2, coming soon!

On Comedy, Life, Joan Rivers, and other things we don't talk about.

To be totally honest, I wasn’t the biggest fan of Joan River’s style of comedy. She was intentionally crass, unapologetically provocative, and sometimes down right dirty. But here’s the thing: that was the point. And no matter what else she was, she was damn funny.
A lot of people have been trying to claim that she wasn’t funny, that she was just hurtful and shameless and would do anything for attention. And sometimes all those things were true, but they shouldn’t be wielded like a weapon against her memory. 
Joan was a master of comedy. And comedy is tough- anyone who tries to tell you differently is trying to get you on stage for an open mic night. If the recent suicide of Robin Williams (God rest his soul) isn’t evidence enough to prove the point, comedy is born out of pain. And Joan’s life was full of pain. Being ostracized by her good friend Johnny Carson, the suicide of her husband after their late night show was canceled, are all painful enough events that if she’d thrown in the towel right then, nobody would have blamed her. 
But she didn’t. 
To paraphrase a now famous clip of her tearing apart a heckler at one of her stand-up shows, “Do you know what comedy is? Comedy is about making people deal with things!”
She didn’t say comedy was supposed to be fun, or carefree, painless. No. It’s about making people deal with things. 
Comedy was how Joan Rivers dealt with her pain. She was a firm believer in the mantra that when life got tough, you had two options: laugh, or cry. Joan chose to laugh. Personally, I think it’s the tougher of the two options. I also think it’s the one that you absolutely cannot live without. 
I did say that I wasn’t a fan of Joan River’s particular brand of comedy. But that doesn’t mean she wasn’t funny. She was damn funny. Because she had to be.

I originally drew this after news came out of police threatening/ suppressing journalists at the Ferguson, Missouri protests of the death of Michael Brown. In light of the horrible things that ISIS/ISIL/IS did to journalists Steven Sotloff and James Foley, though, I think it's still plenty relevant.

"Retro" Chapter 2- Select Your Level, Part 4

This is it, guildmates! "Retro" chapter 2 is finished! When we last left our crew, they'd found themselves stuck in the past thanks to Brad's eldritch gaming monstrosity (which, by the way, you can make yourself if you're feeling demented or industrious enough. time travel not guaranteed). After a surprise encounter, JP... well, some might say he overreacted. 

(If you need to catch up, read Chapter 1 in its entirety here, Chapter 2 parts one and two here, and  Chapter 2, part 3 here! Each is only a couple panels long!)
